Mr. Matthew Barrick

In His Own Words: Finding one’s way in life is never easy. Fortunately, we are not alone in our quest as we have God’s grace and companionship to guide us. As I started off my quest in life as an education major in college, I found that photography was my true passion and calling. However, as God guides me along, I am presented with gifts of opportunity. Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School is one of those rare gifts of grace introduced into my life. First as a parent of children who attend JP and now as a member of a truly wonderful faculty. The ability to combine both my life’s passions, teaching and photography, is a gift that I will work hard to pass forward.
